How should I deal with unruly dogs while out running?
Whenever I go out for a run, I am always afraid of being attacked by someone else's dog because it has happened to me many times. I would like recommendations for how I can keep dogs from doing this to me.
A can of hairspray will work, or pepper spray, or against really large dogs, a taser would work.
If you keep running, a dog's natural instinct is to chase you. It's genetic. So, if you are running and a dog starts to chase you, it's best to stop running and wait for the dog to lose interest. Or wait until he is close enough to spray.
Don't act aggressive toward an aggresssive dog or dogs. It only makes them worse.
Better yet, find a safer place to run.
I got my dog a lead and harness that says "no dogs". Have the same anxiety.
